Blue Water Development, a company specializing in investing, developing, and managing RV resorts, campgrounds, hotels, and attractions recently announced the completion of a $2 million renovation project at The Inn at Pine Knoll Shores, a premier property in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina.
As per a release, the renovation project aims to significantly upgrade the hotel’s amenities and enhance the guest experience, aligning with current trends in the outdoor hospitality industry where travelers are seeking more luxurious and sustainable accommodations.
The renovation project creates a modern updated look while keeping the Inn’s original charm. Blue Water worked with community artists, such as Jody Merritt, Stephen Moore, Janet Jaworski, and Glenn Lamp, to bring the new lobby and public areas to life.
Rafael Correa, Blue Water Development’s chief financial officer, expressed that the renovation aims to enhance the property’s value and establish it as an attractive destination for residents and travelers.
“We assembled a team of experts dedicated to transforming this property into a truly remarkable space,” added Correa. “By leveraging our industry expertise and staying at the forefront of design trends and innovations, we created a property that sets new benchmarks for excellence.”
The $2 million investment made significant upgrades throughout the property, including expanding the lobby, modern exterior upgrades, and improved sound system for the outdoor pool.
State-of-the-art room appliances, technology improvements in the meeting spaces, and a tropical oasis vibe were also introduced. These renovations not only enhance the property’s aesthetics but also improve functionality and sustainability, aligning with Blue Water Development’s commitment to environmental responsibility.
In addition to property enhancements, Blue Water Development is bringing on distinguished chef, Fred Oberfell, affectionately known as “Butch,” to elevate the dining experience at The Clam Digger Restauranr. Chef Oberfell has over 35 years of experience in the hospitality industry and will introduce new culinary offerings to the hotel’s dining experience.
Properties in the outdoor hospitality industry, like The Inn at Pine Knoll Shores, invest not only in quality accommodations but also in providing a range of recreational activities and facilities that cater to various interests. By ensuring a memorable and enjoyable stay for their guests, they can respond to the growing demand for diverse outdoor experiences.
To showcase the renovation efforts, a grand reopening ribbon-cutting is scheduled for June 7, 2023, at 5 pm. Esteemed members of the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce, as well as other local government officials who have been instrumental in supporting the project, will attend the ceremony. Following the ribbon-cutting, attendees will have the opportunity to embark on a guided tour of the renovated property.
